GPL: Stiffer punishment needed for anti-live telecast clubs



The Chief Executive Officer of Wa All Stars, Oduro Nyarko has admonished the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to give clubs stiffer punishment if they prevent broadcasters of the Ghana Premier League.

Newly crowned winners of the just ended Ghana Premier League, Aduana Stars prevented StarTimes from telecasting their match against Asante Kotoko in the match day 18 fixture, at the Dormaa Sports Stadium.

On match day 30, Berekum Chelsea, who were battling to maintain their premier league status also prevented the broadcasters of the league from telecasting their match against Great Olympics.

Many have called on the organizers of the Premier League to ensure the right thing is done, but the astute football administrator wants punitive measures to prevent the trend.

In an interview with Class Sports, he said, “It is not good for the clubs to prevent the broadcasters of the league from telecasting their matches because it brings the game into disrepute.

He added: “If there are stiffer punishments, it will deter the clubs from doing that. It is not the best, it is highly unprofessional and it also breaches the contract agreement we have with StarTimes”.
